The Friends of Northampton Castle

Our ‘Becket at the Castle’ exhibition is now up and running at Northampton Museum! Come along and find out all about the 850th anniversary of Thomas Becket’s trial and Northampton Castle! Open until 31st August.
Have you seen our updated virtual tour and 3D reconstruction of the castle? It’s had nearly 1000 views on youtube already!

The Friends of Northampton Castle (FONC) aim to promote awareness of our heritage and in this website we hope to provide a useful resource for all those who have an interest in the fascinating history of Northampton.

FONC open meetings are held every month at the Old Black Lion pub at 6PM – all welcome! (map). Check the calendar on the right for dates.

Our open meetings are friendly informal affairs which typically last about an hour. Why not have a look at February’s meeting notes. You can also read a quick review of our group’s activities in 2013, or browse the full archive of past meeting notes.
